Teen arrest in car-bomb case

GARDAI have arrested a teenage boy in connection with a pipebomb attack on a car in Dublin's south inner city early yesterday.

The 16-year-old suspect was arrested within hours of the attack, and was being questioned last night under section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act.

The explosive device was thrown into a car parked at Forbes Lane in Rialto shortly after midnight.

An Army bomb disposal team arrived on the scene shortly after 1am and gave the all-clear two hours later.

Gardai believe the incident is linked to local feuding.
